Synopsis

Discover your new favourite wines, beers, spirits and cocktails in this unique and ingenious guide, led by your own taste buds



Written by award-winning drinks expert and columnist for The Metro, Rob Buckhaven



'All about the pleasures of raising a glass. This book tells you what to try next and why . . . Cheers!' Michel Roux Jr



'A kind of Flavour Thesaurus but for drinks. A joyful, thoughtful labyrinth in which you can happily lose yourself for hours' Daily Telegraph

________



Do you always ask for the same old wine, the usual pint, the reliable spirit? It's all too easy to play it safe, and finding new favourites can take time and effort.



Until now.



Using the algorithm 'If you like this, you'll love that', this ingenious guide will lead you by your taste buds, using your existing favourite drinks and flavours to reveal vast varieties that will also suit your palate.



Fan of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc? Try Sancerre for similar grassy notes.



Partial to Vintage Champagne? Believe it or not, you may also like a Brown Porter.



Those who enjoy Scotch Single Malt Whisky should give a Californian Pinot Noir a go, while a preference for Pornstar Martinis suggests you'll also be fond of Japanese Sake.



Exploring the gamut of flavour styles, from floral and fruity to smoky and spicy, then showcasing all the drinks in which you can find them, from wine, beer, cider, tequila and vodka through to tea, coffee, mixers and everything in between



There's a whole universe of incredible wine, beer, spirits and cocktails just waiting to be discovered and enjoyed - if only we can step outside that comfort zone.



This book will show you how.
